New libraries always try to support the oldest C++ standard possible. When
your library is new, you instinctively grasp that it will be more popular
the wider the range of the supported platforms. The flip side is that a few
years later, that oldest C++ standard supported by the library is older
still, yet the user base is bigger because of it. Don't turn it into a trap
now, keep it working.
